2D pixel art destruction game Gigapocalypse announced for PC

Inspired by Godzilla, King Kong, and Rampage.


Publisher Headup and developer Goody Gameworks have announced Gigapocalypse, a 2D pixel art destruction game inspired by kaiju films such as Godzilla and King Kong, as well as the video game classic Rampage. It will launch for PC via Steam in 2021.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:


As a little kid, picking up your dragon toys, spewing fire, feels powerful and destroying everything is one of the best childhood memories for many of us.

Now you become that giant monster in Gigapocalypse, a 2D pixel art destruction game, inspired by classical kaiju movies such as Godzilla and King Kong and the game classic Rampage.

Gigapocalypse features a selection of different “Gigas” from the Prehistoric era, the uncharted outer space and the forgotten history. Each with unique skills, mutations and manifold skins that can be unlocked with level ups.

Start your destruction spree and destroy everything on your way through different beautifully detailed pixel style locations. Ever wondered how it looks like when a giant monster destroys a wild west town? Or clashing against the brave Knights Templar? Gigapocalypse has the answer. But beware: Nasty soldiers, wizards, drones and mechs will do everything to stop you! With each try your Giga will become more powerful until you will finally make it to the diversified, epic boss fights that await you at the end of each level.

Complete quests, take care of your Giga in Tamagotchi-style mini games, find secrets to upgrade your Giga and its “home” and unlock cute, but yet lethal pets that accompany you on journey.

Gigapocalypse is loud, punk, metal, anarchy and a lovely homage to the game and movie classics. It’s a game for the kid in all of us.
